One of my neighbors did exactly this last summer, projecting his friends' short films onto the freshly-painted white wall of his garage.

A pleasant summer evening, plenty of adult beverages, good food, and everyone watched from various groupings of chairs-and-tables.

Could become even more fun if a group of films and cartoons were intercut with drive-in promos and the like.

And, many years ago, my wife and I hosted in-home movie parties, showing 16mm flicks on the walls of our apartments. Three or four short subjects/cartoons per hour; every now and then, we'd dim the "house lights" and everyone would sit on the floor.
